...Aaand we're back. Sorry about the hiatus everyone, but sometimes you don't realize how many things are too many things to do at once until you're actually doing all of them. To bring us back into rock consciousness, I've uploaded one of my favorite Dinosaur Jr bootlegs, made up of two shows -- the first being their 1997 set at the Water Festival in Stockholm, Sweden, and the second being performances from the Bizarre Festival in Cologne, Germany that same year. Don't be put off by how far removed these dates are from Dino Jr's late 80's prime, these sets contain some of the most energy and buzzsaw aggression I've heard from Dinosaur Jr live, and Mike Johnson and George Berz do a more than adequate job of backing up J Mascis' Hammer of Thor brilliance here.
Be especially on guard for facemelting guitar solos on "Alone" and "What Else Is New." Killer shit.
